Abstract: WebSphere Application Server Version 8.5 for z/OS provides the equivalent "Batch" function that was previously part of the "IBM WebSphere Extended Deployment Compute Grid for z/OS" product.
One of the z/OS exclusive capabilities is to provide for Charge-back accounting records for "Job Usage." This document provides guidance and examples for recording these job usage statistics, and displayed with some sample programs.

The SMF type 120, subtypes 9 and 20 for Job Usage can now be displayed in the Detailed report of the SMF Browser sample program.

Also see the following documents in the WAS V8.5 Information Center article at
1. "Job usage data for charge-back accounting support" (File name: cgrid_zosjobusage)
2. "Enabling job usage information" (File name: tgrid_cgjobusage)
3. "Viewing the output data set" (File name: ttrb_SMFviewdata)
